In general the tour was quite informative. But I hoped for more input and some extra information that one doesn't usually come across when researching the underground. As a group of 7 in total it mostly was easy to stick together, but when we had to get on a train which was quite crowded I would have prefered to catch... More

Had a fantastic London Underground tour with Jonas. He is a fantastic guide - extremely knowledge and added so many extra facts outside of the normal tour. Very good speaker and felt very safe going around with him which is important on a walking tour. Had some great anecdotes. Was such an interesting tour and would fully recommend.

A most interesting tour of the London Underground. It lasted roughly two hours, various tube stations visited, fascinating insights in to the underground system. The initial conception and on going development to the present. Well worth it, highly recommend it.

Everyone in my group had nothing but good words to say about the tour and the guide Andy. Great guy with passion. We were a group of Swedish banker´s and even though the weather was quite cold the guides passion during the tour made us focus more on the history and buildnings in the area.

Me and my housemate went on the Death and Debauchery tour taken by Ben. He took us on a fantastic route through seven dials, Covent Garden, embankment and up to Holborn. He was knowledgeable and delivered the facts in a succinct punchy manner. Always engaged and funny too. Thanks Ben

We recently had a tour with Ben that gave me new insight into the Underground - despite having lived here for c. 12yrs. A really interesting way to 'see' the city, and I highly recommend it.

Our guide Stephen for the Modern Architecture tour was amazing. While not an architect himself, he'd worked for years in planning and approving new buildings as they might impact British heritage. He was encyclopedic in his knowledge, of both building back stories and architects. He also offered valuable insights re historical context.I also appreciated the friendliness of the other group...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
